How to Serve God in Private and Public Worship – by John Jackson (1600-1648).
John Jackson (1600-1648) was a Westminster Puritan divine with a hearty theological intellect, and tender pastoral understanding.
In this exhorting work, Jackson plows up the fallow ground of both your private and public service (your worship) to God, to present it in a more acceptable manner through the work of Christ. He outlines and exhorts you and your family in these duties as they are prescribed and regulated by the word of God.
He will guide you through proper prayer, reading, worship, meditation, family instruction, the preparation of the Lord’s Day, the reception of the sacrament, of hearing the word with profit, of Christian fellowship, and a host of other spiritual duties. Jackson will cause you to consider your degree of proficiency in these things, and direct you to the right course of action according to God’s directives.
His thoroughness is seen in the context of practical exhortations for sinners to comply to God’s requirements. He cites over 700 footnotes, all of which are Scriptural proofs of his encouraging words. This is a work that should sit alongside your bible to refer to daily. His goal is to raise your awareness in presenting your duties before God in the blood of Christ, and to do that which God requires and regulates in both private and corporate worship to the best of your ability as a Christian.
